Our House Captains all together with Mr. Lawson
Pupils earn house tokens throughout the week with the weekly winner announced round the classes on Friday mornings. These tokens can be earned in class and through the wider school. A maximum of 3 tokens can be earned at one time and any staff member can hand them out. Points cannot be taken away once they have been earned.
The house that collects the most house tokens throughout the week now earn 10 minutes extra playtime on a Friday. At the end of the year the winning house will be rewarded with a special event to celebrate their success.
Various House Challenges take place throughout the school session and termly House Meetings, which are led by our Captains, are used to organise these and share other important information.
Our House Challenges are planned and implemented by our Captains and have included, for example House Quizzes, design challenges and sporting events.
